Boehner Comes Up Empty Again?

July 24, 2011 1:57 p.m.

After going on national TV this morning and saying he would be putting forward a debt deal framework today, Speaker John Boehner has yet to produce — and reports are trickling in that he won’t have anything to announce today at all. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe …

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are back at the White House for a meeting with President Obama that’s getting underway at 6 p.m. ET.

Late Update: The Pelosi/Reid meeting with Obama has ended, lasting for just over an hour. No announcement — or leaks or spin — yet.

Later Update: A White House official says: “In the meeting the President received an update on the state of negotiations on the Hill from Leader Pelosi and Leader Reid, and the Leaders and the President reiterated our opposition to a short-term debt limit increase.”
